SOURCE: Microwave humming when you shut door

Do the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan ALL come on when the door is closed (without pressing any keys) , or just one or more of those?

Does it actually heat when you shut the door (without pressing any buttons)?

(You can put a cup of cold water in it for a minute to test it)

I would first suspect a shorted door switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If it's not a door switch issue, I would say it has a stuck relay on the control circuit board.

We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: GE JVM1850CH06 microwave no heat with loud humming sound

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .

    When I close the door and begin to try to heat something I immediately hear an abnormal low buzzing sound. If I let it run I smell what seems to be something burning. Obviously this does not sound safe...


    There is no easy fix on a micro wave oven. It is an extremely dangerous appliance and any repair is best left in the hands of a qualified repairman.

    My microwave starts however food does not heat up.


    Micro wave as the name suggests produces heat when the micro waves aimed at an object causes the water molecules inside the object to vibrate hence producing heat.The gadget responsible is the magnetron. If your magnetron is not receiving ht voltage or receiving but faulty, then your micro wave wont work please take precaution when opening micro wave due to high voltage caps that remain charged sometimes even when it is off.check the high voltage fuse/ diode and capacitor if they are fine and the step up trans former o.k then the only option is to replace the magnetron

    Why would my microwave no longer heat or cook?


    micro waves use a tube inside that generates micro waves and like a light bulb they eventually blow out. the tube is not considered replaceable and cheaper to just get new unit.

    GE 1800 XL not heating, no power, except fan works and clock also


    Hello :

    It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

    The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

    or it could be problem with the control panel .


    good luck .

    please rate !

    Micro wave stopped heating. All other features


    Check the door safety interlock switches. Magnatrons are pretty tough but the little switches are not.

    MICRO WAVE RUNS BUT IT DOES NOT HEAT


    Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

    - bad door switches or door switch mounts
    - loose connection at the magnetron
    - problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
    - bad magnetron or other high voltage part such as high-voltage rectifier diode
